• Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce

    I love cranberry sauce with my turkey (like this smoked turkey), but I am not a fan of the can.  This Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce is SO MUCH better than the can, and so easy!! Let’s talk about the Spiced Cranberry Sauce Are you a fan of cranberry sauce?  I feel like you either are or your not.  There doesn’t seem to be too many people out there that are in the middle of the cranberry debate.  Well, I was not a fan either until I started making my own cranberry sauce from FRESH cranberries…thats right there are no cans in this recipe. It is all about the FRESH Berries Growing…

  • Reuben Grilled Cheese

    Are you a reuben fan? Are you a fan of grilled cheese.  I love them… they can be simple… some with meat, some with multiple types of cheese, thick bread, thin bread, fancy bread.  However…I just love grilled cheese. Closed or Open? There is a great delicatessen here is Houston call Kenny & Ziggy’s.  This is the first place I ever experienced The Rueban.  I am almost embarrassed to admit this but it was about 12 years ago that I fell in love with this amazing sandwich.   It all started with a shopping trip to the Galleria with my brother for my sis-in-love.  Afterwards we went to Kenny &…

  • Air Fryer Chicken – Your Go-To Chicken

    Do you have an Air Fryer yet?  I mean everywhere I look I am seeing new recipes, new tips and tricks & people raving about their air fryer.  I resisted on getting one as I just didn’t want another small appliance taking up space, but then I started seeing everyone rave about the Air Fryer Instant Pot Lid.  And let me tell you, I am so glad I did. Better than store bought… The beauty of making a rotisserie style chicken at home is that you can season it just how you want.  You could use lemon pepper, or cajun, or just salt & pepper.  This time around I used…

  • Cheesy Garlic Chicken

    Cheesy Garlic Chicken is your new go to weeknight dinner. I love this recipe even more because it only uses a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand…cannot get much easier than that. Cheesy Garlic LOVE This chicken dish is SOOOO good.  The chicken is nice and tender cooked under a delicious layer of a creamy garlic mixture that gives this dish a TON of flavor. The base of the garlic goodness is cream cheese.  I used a whole brick (8 oz) of cream cheese mixed with a little sour cream and minced garlic…lots of garlic.  The fresh garlic is what makes this chicken stand out.  It…

  • Taking peach cobbler to another level this summer…

    It is Summer and that means it is time for a Texas peach!!  Not too long ago I was asked what my favorite dessert was and I really had to think about it.  You see there is not just one that stands out above everything else, but there are a few that I crave.  First up is my caramel brownies, next would be lemon bars and third would be cobbler.   Now I am not super picky when it comes to the fruit in my cobbler, but peaches are definately a favorite.  It’s all about the crust No kidding my most favorite part of cobbler is the crust.  Honestly I…
